Abstract: Introduction: Imagining the root canal system as a spatial three-dimensional system is based on information that has been obtained through long-term studies and experiences of canal anatomy. In computed tomography, we are able to produce a radiographic fašade of different latitudinal sections of teeth with certain software programs that have the capability of placing side-by side-other 3D images of latitudinal sections of the root canal being prepared. Methods & Materials: In this study we tried to simulate the third generation of CT scanners. Intra oral digital radiographic devise and special statistic methods have been used to achieve this purpose. According to Kaczmarz method, computer reconstruction of the cross-section anatomy was accomplished with mathematical equations adopted for computer processing. Results: Following many radiographic preparations, were. Computer reconstructions of the cross section anatomy of a premolar will be achived from obtained images. Conclusion: It seems that the low price and ease of performance and ease of accessibility of this stimulation of CT compared to common tomography scanners and acceptability of obtained image quality for research purposes can be a suitable replacement for common scanners for preparation of latitudinal images of the tooth in an in vitro environment.
